I'll go weigh him right now...

*fishing Axle out of the pond*
*wrapping Axle in towel*
*running up the stairs*
*removing Towel*
*setting Axle on scale*
*reading scale*
*Axle running away*
*stuffing Axle back into the towel*
*running down the stairs into my room*
*dumping Axle back into pond*


He weighs about 11 pounds. I want to take him to the vet so I can get a more accuret weight.

Oh Axle, you're GORGEOUS!! I love turtles, and your, by far, my favorite turtle!

Btw, what type of turtle is he? He almost looks like a snapper, don't hate me if I'm wrong...
